BTS sets their sites on dominating the Japanese music charts once again with the long-awaited Japanese-language version of their 2016 Korean smash hit, “Blood, Sweat & Tears.”
Paintings, psychedelic splatters of neon and (what appears to be) drugs and alcohol pepper the color-coated visual, as the boys beat each other up, flee and generally freak the f–k out in the high-octane, symbolism-heavy music video. While the Japanese visual centers around art like its Korean counterpart (and includes several clever visual overlaps), the new version is edgier, grittier and much more intense than the sleek, choreography-filled original. This is no casual trip to the museum, that’s for sure.
The release of “Blood, Sweat & Tears” in Japan also marks the group’s first release with their new label in Japan, Def Jam Records.
